Gun clubs are wrap­ping up for Christ­mas break

Western Times - - SPORT -

IT IS the time of year when things start to get a lit­tle qui­eter on Charleville’s shoot­ing ranges, with Christ­mas cel­e­bra­tions and fi­nal shoots in the works around the end of this month.

Charleville Clay Tar­get Club was the first to host its get-to­gether, which in­cluded shoot­ers decked out in Santa suits and a wealth of fes­tiv­i­ties for mem­bers and their fam­i­lies.

In to­tal, 43 shoot­ers hit the range, in­clud­ing some who had trav­elled to join in on the day’s ac­tion.

There is an­other big year in the works for Charleville’s clay tar­get shoot­ers, as the club con­tin­ues to grow.

This week­end it is the Small Bore Ri­fle Club’s turn to host an end-of-year gather­ing, with mem­bers and non-mem­bers all wel­come on Sun­day, De­cem­ber 2.

For the oc­ca­sion, all the nec­es­sary ri­fles and ammo are be­ing made avail­able, mean­ing the only thing re­quired is a keen at­ti­tude.

It will be the ideal way of wind­ing down from a big year for these sharp shoot­ers too, who had the hon­our of host­ing an an­nual shoot which drew com­peti­tors from Bris­bane.
